Ravens coaches have started returning to work at the team facility in Owings Mills, the team announced Monday.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, players are still barred from team facilities — those rehabilitating injuries are allowed — but the NFL on Friday granted access to coaching staffs. Under league rules, 100 employees per day are now allowed at the Under Armour Performance Center, up from 75. Social-distancing guidelines remain in effect.
Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. announced Thursday that the county would adopt Gov. Larry Hogan’s latest orders and move into the second phase of reopening, with nonessential businesses able to reopen last Friday.
Ravens coaches had worked remotely for the past 12 weeks, completing predraft preparations and leading virtual offseason meetings from home. Harbaugh retained his entire staff after last season’s 14-2 campaign, including top coordinators Greg Roman and Don “Wink” Martindale.
Team president Dick Cass has said he does not expect players to return to the facility until the start of training camp, scheduled for late July. Sports Illustrated reported Monday that the NFL is considering starting camp as early as mid-July, which would violate the terms of the league’s new collective bargaining agreement.
